AidWatch is an initiative set up by CONCORD, the pan-European Confederation of NGOs working on international development issues. AidWatch monitors and advocates on the quantity and quality of the Official Development Assistance (ODA) provided by European Union member states and the European Commission. Its work is led by a coordinator based in Brussels with contributions by a network of EU development NGOs from across all EU member states.
AidWatch publishes an annual report on how EU states are performing on aid quantity and quality, aimed to hold member states to account and chart progress towards targets.
Detailed information can found on the AidWatch website.
